is from mississippi. >> this is a politician pandering to a crowd. george bush would sound more southern below the mason/dixon line. and the right still lamb upons hillary clinton for trying to put on an accent. politicians on both sides do that. >> roland martin what do you make of this obama video? >> i think it's utterly laughable that sean hahnity, daily caller and the rest of these folks are making this out to be significant. something written on june 7, 2007, was a headline i wrote on cnn.com. obama's quiet riots are real. >> quiet riot is a phrase he used in this very speech. >> no, no. i was referencing the speech he gave to the hampton minister's conference. here is the deal. talk about the amount of money spent on the gulf coast. alabama, mississippi, okay? is this going to have any impact on this election? absolutely not. this is nothing more than sean hahnity's infan situation with reverend jeremiah wright, pure and simple. >> is there a significance to this you believe? >> i think that there is no material significance here, but the republicans are very good at taking nothin
's a former white house homeland security advisor. she served in the george w. bush administration, currently she sits on the cia external advisory panel and recently visited libya with her employer, mcandrews and forbes. also joining us, former fbi assistant director, tom fuentes, who has extensive experience investigating attacks on americans overseas, and former cia officer, bob baer. so fran, so the fbi sought military protection to go into benghazi. why didn't they get it? >> well, the answer to that question, i think, is not really clear. so it's not unusual, when you want to set up a security perimeter, you may look to the host country. if the host country is unable or unwilling to provide it, we don't know what the answer to that is, y may ask if you think you need it for u.s. military support, but that's got to go through a process. it needs state department and nsc support, the u.s. military would have to make an assessment about how big a security package that would entail and lastly, and perhaps most importantly, you need host government. the libyan government in this case, suppor
with vice president george w. bush. >> governor, if kitty dukakis were raped and murdered, would you favor an irrevocable death penalty for the killer? >> no, i don't. i think you know i have opposed the death penalty during all of my life. >> the public sees his answer as cold and dispassionate and that very night, his poll numbers dropped. during the 1988 vice presidential debate, republican senator dan quayle's comparison to john f. kennedy elicits this blistering response from his opponent. >> senator, you are no jack kennedy. >> body language plays a part in the presidential debate. in 1992, george h.w. bush deliberately looks at his watch and he pays for it when the audience and voters see it as disrespectful. body language makes a difference in the debate between al gore and george w. bush as well. gore sighs over and over again and bush, the underdog, surprises by winning the debate and of course, the election. both president obama and governor romney are seasoned debaters, and experts say neither are prone to making major gaffes. but if there is one thing that history has taught u
candidates succeed is when they're able to marry those two things together. george w. bush won in 2000, despite a roaring economy under president clinton. everyone thought al gore should crush bush, but he was able to win by talking about issues like education and demonstrating to suburban voters that hey, you can trust me. i'm a safe pair of hands on these issues and mitt romney has had a hard time doing that. what mitt romney needs to do is say look, i'm the candidate who's going to deliver more work and better and higher wages through my plan an there are a few things like energy policy and making the case for tax reform. he's made it much, much harder for himself than he should have. >> go ahead. >> it's a little hard for mitt romney to talk about what he is going to do on health care when he said he is going to repeal all of the affordable care act then say i'm going to keep some parts of it. so again, it's sort of like dude, exactly what are you trying to do here? i think the difference between george w. bush, he ran as a compassionate conservative and he had his conservative bas
keep the bush tax cuts. >> that's not his tax cut, that's george bush's tax cut. >> he preserved it once and he can preserve it again. ryan-romney ticket, they're doing damage to their own brand here. paul ryan comes out and says i'm going to tell the truth, i'm the guy that's going to talk numbers, i'm the guy who knows what's going on here, and then to say i can't really explain this to you. >> paul ryan -- they can pay for these budget take overs. they are assuming dynamic budgets. >> i love that, it's called supply side. here's what i love to do. if you believe in dynamic budgets, answer me this. hold on guys, let me get this out. dynamic scoring in a budget. if you agree with this, i'll fall over in this chair, every dollar you pay in head start, 20 years from now saves you in prison costs. >> this is a simple political question, obama uses the bush middle class cuts, but that's just an extension of what george w. bush put in place. what romney is saying, he's going to up the ante from here. why doesn't mitt romney make that case? >> you saw romney go almost halfway, he talk
in campaigns. i remember eight years ago when john kerry was getting ready to debate george bush, we were eight points down. coming out of that first debate we were tied with george bush. so there is an opportunity for mitt romney if he takes advantage of it next wednesday night, to turn the momentum around. he not only has to win this debate but has to change the dynamics in this race. we know he's going to show up prepared, disciplined and aggressive, even tim pawlenty said that he's as good as it gets when it comes to debating. but the question is whether or not he's going to be able to talk to the american people specifically about what his plans are for this country. that's been a huge deficit for him over the course of this campaign. no specifics, no details. so i think that is part of the burden he carries next wednesday night. >> i suppose one of the problems for you is that barack obama is in the strange position of being the quite clear favorite. i don't think many incumbent presidents have that going into debates but people say i saw a poll this morning, he's up nearly 60% of america
ready, shovels hitting the ground, and a net loss of jobs in the time he's been president. george bush is unpatriotic and irresponsible, $14 trillion in debt, eight years. he's got $6 trillion and said he cut the deficit in half in his first term. he's not been asked the simple basic questions by anybody. how did we get to -- >> except by univision. >> sean: one example. >> they haven't even hit him on the outright lie about libya. another anticipated obama argument, this crisis was caused by two wars and push tax cuts. that's so easily refuted. 2007, $161 billion deficit with two wars raging and bush tax cuts implemented in 2003. what romney really needs to do, though, is stress the urgency. none of this john mccain, obama will make a fine president. no. if obama is re-elected, this country is over as we know it. >> yeah. >> he needs to stay that in no uncertain terms. i say this, not because i'm a partisan, i'm scared to death of our lifetime earnings being in jeopardied, i'm scared to death of our liberty, of our prosperity. the american dream is gone. he doesn't believe in opportun
. it was a no-brainer. the same was with george bush. when he ran, he did great work for us. we had a great relationship, the things he did for california. how quickly he was out there with our fires, how quickly he responded, all the needs that we had. and of course i endorsed him right away, even though we didn't agree on everything, but he was my man. so some other times you just figure, like, i got to wait a little bit, i want to hear the debates, i'm going to look forward to the debates, then i make up my mind. that's where i am right now with this whole. >>
was homeland security advisor during the george w. bush administration, as we often point out, she currently serves on the cia's external advisory committee and recently traveled to libya with her employer, mcandrews and forbes. she had actually met with ambassador stevens. what do you make of the pictures you see of what arwa's talking about? >> as i listen to arwa, it just reinforces what we said last week and we've said from the beginning. investigators have to go there, even if you didn't have all the physical evidence there that arwa just described to our viewers, you would want to know from the witness interviews, anderson, you would want to know measurements, you would want to be able to take people through it to really understand what the dynamic was. but then you see things like handprints and blood samples. one of the things, the first thing you would do, i'll give you an example, that is you would take the blood sample off the toilet and the bidet and see whether or not it matched first to the ambassador's. did he fall. there's all sorts of things you would want to know. you know,
bush, and to spend all of this time with george bush at camp david and to do horseshoe throwing and skeet and trap shooting and to sit in the oval office and to listen to his meetings -- >> amazing moments for a guy from -- unknown kid from austria. >> it's unbelievable, that ride. and the book also deals with the determination and the fanaticism and the competitiveness and always keeping the eye on the ball. and you know, the 15 arnold rules and all of those things that helped me get through and to get the way i am today. so that's what the book is about. >> whatever you've done in your life, when you've wanted something badly enough, you've tended to get there. you clearly would have liked to repair your marriage to as you said, the one and only love of your life, really. if maria's watching this and she might well be watching this, what would you say to her? >> i would just say sorry for what i've done. you know, i want to win her back and you know, i hope even though she talks about forgiveness, i hope that you really can forgive. >> you think do you deserve to be forgiven,
obama's leadership created more private sector jobs than eight years of george w. bush, so i think what all of the economists would agree is that there is steady job creation that's happening. it could happen more quickly if republicans in congress would vote for some of the president's joks -- jobs initiatives. jobs. >> your bottom line is that republicans have stunted the growth of the economy? >> i think they've been trying hard. i think they voted against every single jobs initiative the president has sent to the hill, and in an effort to try to slow the economy before the election. they haven't been able to do it. we're still creating jobs instead of losing them as we were under george bush. >> you can't be happy that economic growth is but 1.3% in a quarter is not great. it's growth. i grant you that. but it's the same as it was a year ago. where is the improvement? >> well, when you compound it, i mean, it's -- maryland, for example, we've recovered 70% of the jobs we lost during the bush recession. we haven't recovered all that we lost during the bush recession, but it's clearly
look at the reality most americans believe george bush shares more responsibility because the president inherited a mess. if that is the perception of voters try to shake that perception when it is not working it is a problem. with respect to the president he has an advantage. doesn't get all the blame. it was a terrible fiscal crisis and terrible unemployment crisis. dennis: what is your bike to obama? >> the president needs to paint the picture and be clear about where we have been and where we are and where we are going. make it clear the future is brighter. dennis: i am sick of the president blaming the other guy for problems he helped create. what do you say? >> my furnace sauce going into this is romney has to state you have been the president for the last four years, not george w. bush. we came out of some real problems in 2008 but the economy was getting better. the administration was putting out of beds about how the economy is better and it went south again because of his policies. he has to jump all over that. you are the president. the box tops with your debt and enough is e
height. then vice president george bush headed up a task force to fight the problem. >> we have to do better interdicting it. >> reporter: found in commercial jets, flour, even boxes of yams, problem is some aren't yams at all, rather plaster casts painted and shaped like yams, inside, pure coke. stash houses and drug labs routinely raided. that was a war on drugs. these days, not even a war on words. the white house doesn't even call it a war any longer, focusing more on prevention. in this year's political season the mention of drugs rarely gets a mention on the campaign trail. when it does, the president and mitt romney appear to be on the same page. >> the president of the united states must help make a priority help reducing demand in this country. >> the united states can focus on drug treatment and prevention. >> absolutely. i agree with that. in if any should know, it's judge jagisele pollack, preside over drug court in florida. pollack said drug courts ought to be a priority for the candidates because they reduce drug dependency and save taxpayers millions. she has the number
moments, like when al gore, in his debates in 2000 with george bush, was sighing and rolling his eyes and walked out onstage with this crazy clown face, and that ended up sort of overwhelming the debate, another debate, where with hillary clinton, when her competitor was running for the senate, crossed the stage in a physical image of intimidation. i think the viewers will be looking at the two candidates of who they are, who they are as men. are they comfortable in their own skin? are they commanding? do they project leadership and confidence? all of these things play. people who listen to the nixon-kennedy debate, they thought nixon won. people who watched it on tv, they thought it went to jfk. >> obviously those famous mom t moments -- maria wlamaria, what think? >> you pointed to a famous moment that didn't do anything to fix the outcome of the campaign, so while there could be those moments onstage, it's really up to the voters whether those moments are going to become game-changing for the campaign itself. and let's be honest here. both candidates are going to be very well prep
was honing his skills at harvard. george bush was cheerleading at yale and he had a higher gpa. barack obama just admitted, i was a crappy student. but we'll never know. by definition. and look at you. look how smart you are compared to me. "new york times," too big to fail, all that stuff. anyway, mike -- >> what i think romney needs to do -- >> we've got to go. >> good seeing you guys this morning. >> good seeing you this morning. thanks for playing along. we wanted to gear up for this next debate. the smart one, the democrat, and the stupid one, the republican. try not to trip all over yourself. but do know that your views are so antiquated -- >> absolutely. >> the first presidential debate will be held tonight in the battleground state of colorado. joining us now for a debate before the debate, democratic strategist jimmy williams, and darrell watkins, he made it to the table. >> somebody get behind you to talk about that? >> yes. >> joe, i'm going to go to you first. my question is romney has historically not been an aggressor in these debates. at least in the primaries. >> in the prima
action. >> no president ever says we're going to bomb you. george w. bush said all options on the table. >> ronald reagan made it pretty clear he was going to take action, he pointed missiles at the soviet union. >> was bush wrong when he didn't say we are going to bomb you, he said all options are on the table. >> this was a long time ago when bush was dealing with iran, they were five, six, seven, eight, nine years from being becoming nuclear. iran now could be months washg a year away, two years away. iran has three times increased the uranium and made it much more enriched than originally. that is a massive change in a very short period of time. and, of course, obama has a bad history of begging to negotiate. wrote a letter to the ayatollah six months to talk to him. >> what would mitt romney do better? he had the same red line as president obama? >> we don't know. we don't know what president obama's red line is, since he won't share it with us, won't share it with prime minister netan netanya netanyahu, he wants to keep it as fuzzy as possible. if he wants to communicate is privat
to tax increases when it hit 4%. george w. bush did. but today's republican parties is organized around the proposition that no matter the circumstances, there must never be a tax increase of any kind. the simpson-bowles proposal calls for 1% for every $3 of spending cut bus every republican presidential candidate during the primaries including romney pledge thad he or she would not accept $10 of spending cuts if that meant $10 of tax increases. so romney could present a serious plan and then h would face a revolt within his own party. so his solution has been to be it lerly vague about how to deal with the actually deaf sit. when pressed for details he said, the devil's in the details. he's right. were he to get specific he would be committing ideological blasphemy. instead he talks about freedom and capitalism. the same pattern emerges on immigration. he says he wanted to solve the immigration issue permanently but he can't propose anything practical because that would talk about legalizing in some form the 12 million illegal immigrants in this country and that would in turn cause a r
that jimmy carter was a stumbling, ineffective president. >> reporter: fast forward to 1992. president george h.w. bush was already on the ropes against bill clinton over a sluggish economy, when casper wineberger, former president ronald reagan's defense secretary, was implicated in the iran contra scandal shortly before election day. bad news that bush, who served as reagan's vice president, did not need. in 2004, a classic october surprise. osama bin laden released a video on october 29th, just four days before election day in a razor-thin race between president bush and john kerry. three years after 9/11, it served as a reminder of the terrorist threat and strategists in both parties believed helped president bush. more recently the term october surprise has come to mean a seismic event in the fall of an election year. though most have centered around foreign policy, others have been about the economy, like in 2008. when the economy imploded, john mccain's advisors say his campaign collapsed along with it and never recovered. historians say in order for an october surprise to have a real
in the election in the history of this poll, except for george h.w. bush's 34/52 rating. and he lost that election. tonight, ann romney seems sure that the country will soon realize how lucky we are that mitt romney is running for president. >> i know he's very well prepared. he's focused, he's very bright. i think the country will be blessed by having someone with his skill set, his experience and his -- just his goodness. to be able to run this country. this guy does care that he's out there. and he's a person with compassion. >> first lady michelle obama did not attempt to lower expectationings for her husband today. >> he doesn't need much advice. he's a very good debater. so i do tell him to have fun and relax and just be himself because the truth is if he's the barack obama the country has come to know and trust, he's going to do a great job. >> the new nation nbc news poll shows that among likely voters president obama polls at 49% and mitt romney at 46%. tonight, night silver of the new york times blog, forecasts that on november 6 obama will win 318 votes and mitt romney will win 219. and
, and a famous case involving texas in 1976 in which the state of texas before george of the bush was governor attempted to exclude the children of illegal immigrants from public schools. the supreme court looked at the case and said, you can't do this. you can't keep them out of emergency rooms, welfare, whenever. benefits to make available to the public at large you cannot distinguish between americans and illegal immigrants. that means once here, once you get across the border your internal to the same benefits. stuart: food stamps, free phone from the obama administration, free medical care, free education, go to college. >> yes,. >> the american way. >> whether it is appropriate and not as a great topic for debate, but it's clear that is a lot today. it is probably clear that most folks, here are aware in some form of the existence of the law stuart: yes, they are aware. i immigrated nearly 38 years ago. i was not aware of any such law. >> i can't imagine you came here for welfare. >> i didn't. stuart: have never taken anything from the government. it astonishes me. you think this is the
of approaching. you think back to george w. bush when the whole war on terror started and there was always talk about what a tough battle this was going to be for the rest of our lifetimes basically. and sort of admitting that up fronts, but that the efforts were diligent to make sure that we were going to continue to combat this war on terror. it's almost as if right now 36 days before the election, you don't really want to talk about that side of it, that there might be a reinsurgentence now of equaled, even though osama bin laden is dead. there might still be a resurgence of al-qaeda. >> eric: last night on "60 minutes," there was a fantastic piece on interviewing president karzai from afghanistan and also our general boots on the ground in afghanistan, they have a little bit different take on where al-qaeda is. take a listen. >> al-qaeda has come back. al-qaeda is a resilient organization. but they're not here in large numbers. but al-qaeda doesn't have to be anywhere in large numbers. >> the reason for the nato and american intervention in afghanistan was terrorism. terrorism has not gone
